Our Group Legal Services division

Advise, supervise and support.

In the Group Legal Services division, we are passionate about the law. We are the central legal department of Hannover Re and operate worldwide.

"The respectful interaction within the team and the friendly corporate culture made my move to Hannover Re much easier. The variety of my tasks allows me to deal with a wide range of legal issues and to develop my skills on an ongoing basis, for example by attending seminars. I particularly appreciate working in a globally oriented company with staff from different divisions and countries. This results in a wide variety of perspectives."

What competencies do we need?

Our work is as diverse as the people who make up our team. Consultancy skills and assertiveness, strategic negotiating skills and an analytical mindset are a good foundation. Although professional experience in the (re)insurance business is a prerequisite for some of our roles, experienced lawyers will also find exciting and varied opportunities with us outside this core legal area, for example in the replacement of entire policy portfolios or in the operational legal support of complex claims.

We value these skills:

  • A law degree with completed 2nd state bar examination, degree in business law or a comparable international qualification; but we also welcome bright minds without a law degree – especially in the area of compliance.
  • Basic experience in the review, drafting and negotiation of contracts and other legal documents is particularly needed in Corporate Matters and Claims & Reinsurance.
  • Professional experience in an international context.
  • Knowledge of national and international sanctions and embargo regulations.

By the way, you don't need to have all these skills. You can find out more about our specific requirements in our current vacancies.
